Ian and Rodney do a great job of making this quaint old home feel cozy and welcoming, and their food was the best we ate the whole time we were in Idyllwild. Convenient to town but out of the main bustle, and plenty of places to plop down with a book and enjoy the scenery. We'd go back!

We were greeted by Innkeeper, Rodney, who checked us in and showed us to our room. We stayed in the Summer Room and found it met our needs nicely. It's at the back of the house, so there is no traffic noise from the highway. Packed with furniture, but roomy enough. We took a walk along Strawberry Creek (not running... More

I highly recommend this Inn to anyone looking to have a relaxing weekend in Idyllwild. While the owners aren't the most talkative, everything else about this adorable Inn makes staying here worth it. The property is charming with hammocks, gardens and plenty of outdoor seating to read a book or have a glass of wine. Breakfast was delicious and the... More

I spent a single night here on 6/28 after dropping off my son at the Idyllwild Arts Campus. The outside property is deliberately simple and disheveled. Weeds sprout alongside flowers and gravel trails featuring a number of benches, swings and other places to chill in relative serenity. Of course, said serenity is limited by the properties’ direct proximity to Highway... More

We spent two nights at the Strawberry Creek Inn in early June, a Sunday and Monday night. It had been about 15 years since our last trip to Idyllwild and we remembered passing this property on our way into town on previous trips. It always looked inviting from the road. We had one of the rooms, San Jacinto, that opens... More

Husband and I stayed here for 2 nights using an amazon local coupon. Nicely kept up. Should replace the carpet upstairs. We stayed in an upstairs room (oak tree room) which was small but we were not in it much. The other rooms upstairs were larger with 2 chairs and fireplaces. The breakfast made by Rodney was wonderful and the... More

We picked the Evergreen as it is on the ground floor. It was nice and private, but seemed crowded and cluttered with pillows everywhere, and yet there was no closet or chest of drawers. You have to live out of your suitcase. There are shaker-type pegs on doors for hanging stuff. The shower is cruise ship tiny. TV worked sporadically.... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Strawberry Creek Inn b & b, in Idyllwild, Ca. We stayed in "Maggie's Room". It was our first time at a bed & breakfast. The hosts were behind the scenes which my husband and I really liked. The house was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the presentation was lovely. The... More

Cozy and comfortably furnished B&B with a delicious breakfast and evening appetizers included in the room charge. Natural landscaped grounds, lots of sitting areas and a few hammocks as well as whimsical sculptures and reflective spiritual icons dot the grounds. A hen house full of beautiful chickens provide fresh eggs for the morning's breakfast. Strawberry Creek runs behind the property... More

Stayed here 2 nights on an Amazon Local special. In fact, everyone we ate with at breakfast had come on some kind of promotion. The place is sort of Madonna Inn-ish with each room having it's own personality. We were in the San Jacinto room which had wood walls and was very charming. The one thing you have to be... More
